Hello Tanda Tula Family!! We want to "Thank you" from the bottom of our hearts for this priceless experience! We believe we shared the safari drives with the couple who wrote the "WOW! Would be difficult to fine better" review. We totally agree with their review and couldn't have put it better! When we landed on the airstrip in the... More

We have heard great things about Tanda Tula so we were very excited about our first visit there 3 weeks ago. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed by all the staff and it wasn't long before we felt part of their happy family. They spoiled us with fantastic food and drink and Ryan, the chef, produced some of... More

A safari is on many people's bucket list. There are so many camps to choose from and, yes, they can be pretty expensive, so it's crucial to try and get it right. This was our first safari experience and Tanda Tula delivered excellence on every single level. Staff and Service - staff are immensely friendly and there was no sense,... More

I knew that Tanda Tula was the right place to recommend to friends for a small and intimate but memorable wedding. Tanda Tula staff went over and above to make it exactly the event they were looking for. The lodge was super, the staff incredible and overall a phenomenal evening. Thank you Tandies for being more than was expected of... More

Tanda Tula not only lived up to but far exceeded its many great reviews.We were hoping for great things and were not disappointed.Despite the storms, heavy rains (at night only luckily) and the flooding of the river bed crossings the whole team made sure our safari experience was not marred in any way. From the moment we arrived we felt... More

I had been told it would be great, but it was spectacular. The lodge, the experience & knowledge of the guides & trackers. The food and exceptional service. Everything the lodge provided was to create wonderful memories. Unforgettable.

Excellent stay in this fantastic lodge, in the heart of Timbavati. Our experience was a perfect mix between the exciting moments of the game drives where we could see lions, leopards, elephants...and the resting moments in the luxury of Tanda Tula. We've loved the staff service's quality. Everybody is permanently taking care of your wellness. We also appreciate a lot,... More

Just returned recently from a Honeymoon at Tanda Tula. This was our second stop on our trip to South Africa, and our second safari (ever, and of the trip!). The staff here was really amazing -- they were so accommodating, genuine, and kind. The service (with a smile) was noticeably different (and better) than another camp we stayed at. Thank... More
